The forward signed a massive 4-year, $94 million contract in the offseason to be the Grizzlies new scoring threat, but his numbers across the floor are down.
Chandler Parsons out for the season? Damn as soon as I believe that Joakim’s contract is the worst, Parson’s comes back with the left hook.

Parsons even summed up his struggles earlier this season saying “I suck right now.”
